Both Casey and Jeff, two very good friends to Shane, tell him that he expects too much of people and they tell him to go easy on his father. The thing that makes Shane truly realize how much he needs his dad is when his father is badly injured at a rodeo. Shane should have realised earlier that his father is not going to be there forever and he should enjoy the moments that they will share together, instead of ignoring both the fact that his father will not be there one day and the insurmountable value of the time they spend together. The first example that Shane takes his father for granted is when he and Casey are talking about his dad and Casey tells him “You expect too much from people, sometimes, Shane.” (Halvorson, page 92.) That example supports the thesis because Casey is helping Shane acknowledge that he actually, deep down, loves his dad more than he realises.
